A successful but chilly first day of the Magic Marine Topper Winter Championships saw 220 boats taking to the water for two races. Competitors have travelled from as far as Scotland and Cornwall. The floating beach helped tremendously with launching and only one person managed to become totally immersed – Mike Beckett!
DWSC Members: For Sunday 30th we have allocated areas for club sailors and their boats so there should be no major problems, however, it is worth allowing an extra 10 minutes for your cup of coffee in the morning!

Datchet welcomes the Magic Marine Topper Winter Championships this weekend. 220 young sailors have launched and all is going well with a lovely force 2.
** IMPORTANT – Note to Sunday racers **
The 220 (!) visiting Toppers will boat at 09.45h Sunday morning I.e. before the club racers boat. This should allow normal club racing to happen smoothly.
